It seems to be a truth universally acknowledged that multitouch is a generally better interaction concept than anything else.
I wonder why that is? I mean, nobody would claim that finger painting is generally better than painting with a brush.
Yet, every new handset seems to be critiqued upon how good it handles multitouch.
Which is a total non-issue. I love my Blackberry, and it doesn't even have single touch. And I don't think it would be much better if it had.
I also don't think the Blackberry would be better if it had a browser where text size is 2 pixels.
That's all just stupid reality distortion.
